My mother always made this cranberry bread. I usually stock up on cranberries when they're in season and freeze them so I can make this year-round. —Karen Czechowicz, Ocala, Florida

"I sat down to read my healthy Cooking yesterday while watching college football. I saw this recipe and remembered I had about 2 cups of cranberries leftover that I hadn't used with our Thanksgiving cranberry salad. So, my son and I baked two loaves of this bread. We had one with supper last night, and I gave the other way to some relatives we met for breakfast this morning. I will be making several of these for holiday gifts. I like that it is tart and not to sweet. Great recipe!"

"This bread was super easy to make and my family and friends raved about it! They thought for sure I had bought it from a bakery. I will be making this again and again!"
